I notice trtsk ignored the ventilation threads I referred him to. Why?
And again, if the alleged sonderkommandos waited and did not enter the alleged gas chambers immediately, the numbers that were allegedly gassed could not have been achieved in the timeframe alleged. Hence they would have needed to move immediately or the story does not hold on that basis alone. But if they entered immediately, before the Zyklon-B was finished releasing it's cyanide, massive problems would have occurred.
The story is ridiculous anyway you cut it.
Mr. Hannover a straw man is when one constructs a false argument on the part of their opponent and debates that rather than the real argument of their opponent. I have not done this. I have responded to your allegation that it would take too long to effectively gas human beings by pointing out with the agreement of another poster here that in fact raising the temperature would increase the release of the gas. I disagree with her that humidity would impede this process and so apparently does Sailor. I also disagree with her that ventilation was unsufficient.
Thus there is no straw man here.
I have not ignored the threads you brought up. I just did not find anything worth responding to in them.
Your concluding paragraphs depends entirely on your version of your events and your understanding of chemistry. I suggest that you are incorrect on both counts.
I would also like to add that in Kremas without ventilation gas masks were worn by the SK.
It comes down to this. If you place less Zyklon-B in a hotter and more humid chamber with less fresh air then you are going to produce gas more quickly and for that matter have it dissipate more quickly. Since it takes less cyanide to kill people than lice there is still no reason to think that the scenario as history records it is inaccurate.
